  • Patent number: 10097594
    Abstract: During call setup in a communication system, first and second communication terminals may negotiate regarding which codecs to use for a streaming media session. In some cases, the first communication terminal may support a prioritized codec that has been designated for preferential use. In cases where the second communication terminal does not support the prioritized codec, a serving network may nevertheless select the prioritized codec for media communications with the first communication terminal, and may perform transcoding between the prioritized codec and a non-prioritized codec that has been selected for use with the second communication terminal. For newly initiated sessions, however, the serving network may determine the amount of resources that are available for transcoding. When there are limited resources, the serving network may opt to not use the prioritized codec in the situation described above, and may instead use a non-prioritized codec for end-to-end communications, without transcoding.

  • Patent number: 9679084
    Abstract: A method and apparatus are disclosed for enabling nodes in a distributed system to share one or more memory portions. A home node makes a portion of its main memory available for sharing, and one or more sharer nodes mirrors that shared portion of the home node's main memory in its own main memory. To maintain memory coherency, a memory coherence protocol is implemented. Under this protocol, a special data value is used to indicate that data in a mirrored memory location is not valid. This enables a sharer node to know when to obtain valid data from a home node. With this protocol, valid data is obtained from the home node and updates are propagated to the home node. Thus, no “dirty” data is transferred between sharer nodes. Consequently, the failure of one node will not cause the failure of another node or the failure of the entire system.

  • Patent number: 9501517
    Abstract: The present invention extends to methods, systems, and computer program products for providing consistent tenant experiences at multi-tenant database. Embodiments of the invention include an import service that facilitates data imports without any distribution logic on a tenant. A tenant (caller) provides data in essentially any order. The import service understands the distribution of data across multiple databases and determines for any given piece of import data what database the import data is to be inserted into. Accordingly, the tenant (caller) is relieved from having to know how the data is distributed across a set (of potentially hundreds or thousands) of databases. The import service can optimize an import process to provide load balancing and fairness across a dynamic distributed database system. For example, the import service can insure that a large import by one tenant does not deprive the import other tenants of appropriate resources.

    Abstract: A data storage system employs a multi-level stack including a lower-deck file system and an upper-deck file system providing a file system interface to a file system consumer. The lower-deck file system presents a volume file to provide storage to the upper-deck file system. Storage is reserved to the upper-deck file system, and the volume file is fully provisioned so an out-of-space condition is not presented to the upper-deck file system. In an initial direct operating mode a block address in the lower-deck file system is obtained by a calculation from a corresponding block address in the volume file. Snapshots of a primary volume file are created and stored in respective snapshot volume files. The lower-deck file system transitions into a mapped mode using generally arbitrary mappings of block addresses of the primary volume file and snapshot volume files to obtain corresponding block addresses in the lower-deck file system.

  • Publication number: 20150134708
    Abstract: Apparatus and method for updating map structures in an object storage system. A server communicates with users of an object storage system over a network. A plurality of data storage devices are arranged into locations to store and retrieve data objects of the users. A storage controller is associated with each location to direct data object transfers between the data storage devices of the associated location and the server using an existing map structure that describes the data objects in each location. A management module is adapted to generate a new map structure, migrate at least one data object from an existing location described by the existing map structure to a new location described by the new map structure, and to distribute the new map structure to each of the storage controllers after the migration of the at least one data object.

  • Patent number: 9031991
    Abstract: Various techniques for providing a Web Service interface to an order management system are disclosed. In one embodiment, a Web Service interface receives a hierarchical property set, which includes properties being input to an order management system. The Web Service interface accesses mapping information, which associates a variable in a flat property set with a hierarchical property set path. The Web Service interface uses the mapping information to convert the hierarchical property set to the flat property set, based upon the mapping information, and then causes the order management system to process the flat property set. The Web Service interface can also use the same mapping information to convert a flat property set generated by the order management system into a hierarchical property set.

  • Patent number: 9020994
    Abstract: A client computer migrates data objects from a first data store employing a flat namespace to a second data store employing a hierarchical directory-based file system. File storing includes (1) generating a data object (for user data file) and an object identifier which is returned to an application for use in retrieving the user data file; (2) mapping the object identifier to originate a subdirectory name; and (3) sending a write request to the file system to create the named subdirectory and store the data object therein. File retrieving includes (4) sending a read request including the object identifier to the first data store; (5) extracting a user data file from a received data object and returning it to the application; and (6) performing the steps of the file storing to store the data object at the second data store, completing the migration of the data object.

  • Patent number: 9020984
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for optimizing resource utilization in distributed storage systems. A data migration technique is described that may operate in the background in a distributed storage data center to migrate data among a fleet of storage units to achieve a substantially even and randomized data storage distribution among all storage units in the fleet. When new storage units are added to the fleet and coupled to the data center network, the new storage units are detected. Instead of processing and storing new data to the newly added storage units, as in conventional distributed storage systems, the new units are blocked from general client I/O to allow the data migration technique to migrate data from other, previously installed storage hardware in the data center onto the new storage hardware. Once the storage load on the new storage units is balanced with the rest of the fleet, the new storage units are released for general client I/O.
